It’s no secret that to deliver the best outcomes for your community, you need highly motivated, focused and productive people.

Let them help you create a culture where they can reach their full potential. Bring them on the journey with you. Ask the right questions to get their insights into how they can better serve your community, and how you can help them make it happen.

I think you can achieve incredible things if you give people a platform and give them topics to discuss because they know the business far better than anyone else and they know what the team is going to achieve.

Comparing survey results between employees and the Exec team

Serving the community with limited resources and competing demands requires a culture that views challenges as opportunities, and finds a way to work through to the best outcomes.

If your people aren't excited by the challenges and don’t feel involved in the solutions, then you won’t be able to deliver what your community needs. Gain deep insights into what motivates your people, and how you can create a strong, resilient workforce and thriving council culture.

Why changes are happening survey question for change management outcomes

Successful change management programmes rely on everyone understanding what’s changing, why, and how it will affect them. Failure to do this is the leading cause of change management programmes not delivering on their promise.

Check the entire team’s perceptions and progress, identify gaps in understanding or concerns and address them to ensure the success of your change management process.
